We have made Adobe very aware that the online help does not follow the methods that RoboHelp itself creates. Pending that being fixed, go to Tools | Options and tick the Use Offline Help option.
Hmm, that didn't seem to make any difference in behavior. What's the benefit of clicking that option? Is there an unseen/stability issue or such?

That's ... something.
It should have made a big difference. The whole navigation is different between online and offline and they are different visually, obviously different. It is just that it accesses two different help systems. Nothing to do with stability. You really are determined to keep knocking at every opportunity.
No, honestly swear-to-RoboGod it looks the same as before. I'm not trying to be a pill.
Maybe we're talking about different things.
Here's what I did:
1. Went to: File->Rename Project
2. Clicked the Help button in the lower right corner of the dialog box (underneath OK and Cancel). The Rename Project help screen appeared. The breadcrumb is: Home > Projects > Working with projects > Rename projects
3. Clicked the Related Topics button at the bottom of the screen and selected Save projects, whereupon that help screen appears with the breadcrumb Home > Projects > Working with projects > Save projects
Whether I follow those steps with Tools/Options/Use Online Help checked or not, what I see is just the same, with the same breadcrumb, navigation behavior, fonts, colors, layout, and everything.
Come to think of it just now, wouldn't online (meaning over the Internet?) be better because at least then I could use my browser's own back button to navigate, or at least open new topics in a new tab? We must be talking about different things, our RHs are accessing help in a different manner, or I've not turned something on that you have that should be, or something.

Knocking? I don't follow...
I hadn't appreciated what they have done with the CSH. My apologies.
About to email my contacts. Suggest you use the offline help and access it from the RH menu, rather than using CSH.
